Fromagerie Le Crêt is located near Gruyère’s namesake village in the canton of Fribourg, Switzerland. Cheesemaker Jean-Marie Dunand goes to great lengths to maintain high standards. Using only his most exceptional milk, Dunand makes about half as much cheese as his quota would allow and is continuously refining his process. The result is a dairy that’s become a frequent recipient of the Gruyère Association’s Medaille d’Or, an award presented to dairies with the highest evaluations every month for five years. Aged by a local affineur that has been in business since 1915, Gruyère 1655 is marked by a fresh cream blast, a bright fruity flavor, and a deep, structured nuttiness. The paste is light mocha in color and studded with pinpoint crystals.
